Has anyonelse had the experience of going to HomeDepo for some Euro hindges and finding all of the packages torn open and screws missing!I have had to go to 5 Depos and Lowes to find enough intact.I think it's because the screws are weak and get striped by a power drill.Anyone know what i'm talking about?

The big box stores are not the best sources for quality hinges and they are usually more expensive than other sources. I buy hinges without screws in bulk. You can order like a dozen or more and possibly get a price break. Then order the screws separate from a hardware distributor, by the hundred or more, they're cheap that way. A good #6 x 5/8" coarse thread, flat head, phillips, plated screw works real good.

A great source for H..I..N..G..E..S

is www.ahturf.com I buy all my overlay hinges there. Standard price for ½" overlay is $.97 each. The screws are sold in bulk at the bottom of the page. Would love to supply you a link other than the web address but I do not possess.....or desire.....those skills.

I buy my hinges from HDL. They send you a bag of screws with the hinges. They're just not undercut, which I prefer.

In the long run it ends up cheaper NOT going to them for that reason,besides a few others.
